[contribution] Simple Template System (sts)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. This tool is great !! I was actually trying to do it manually but this is just amazing !! (as I am a designer and not a coder)

 

I have a question.. although I am able to change the index page layout.. and the product page layout.. (product_info.php)

 

when I click my categories tab.. I am still on the index.php page (index.php?cPath=21) and I see some of my products appear from a particular category..

I want to change the way they are laid out with a template.. is this possible?

 

Thanks for all your hard work

 

 

By the way.. on my page

 

product_info.php.html my 'click to enlarge image' wasnt working..

 

when I looked at the link it seems to have an absolute URL for the popup.. I changed it to

 

java script:popupWindow('popup_image.php?pID=$productsid')

 

inside the quotes .. and now it works fine..

 

I have version STS-3_00b2 (not sure if it is the latest)

 

HOPE THIS MAKES SENSE AND IS SOME USE..

I just did a search through the code for this button 'button_buy_now.gif'

 

It only appear in one place .. product_listing.php so I think this is the page I want to be able to alter via template..

 

anyway.. the main point is for me (and others :-) ) to modify the way the products ina certain category are laid out - and as a designer this is pretty important for me :-)

 

Thanks again,

Russ,

 

Not sure if it is what you are looking for, but you can change what position you want the description, price, buy now button show up under the Categories from the Admin=>Configuration=>Product Listing.

I took a look, but I don't think it does what I am looking for. I would like to have the product PICS showing up in 3 wide grid (3 abreast?) wiht a few details and the buy now button below each picture.

ok Leathel and members. I did the 4 steps below but my store is still using the default site template sts_template.html. Are there any additional steps to let osCommerce know that these files exist and have it use these templates? plz help

 

Steps completed so far:

---------------------------

1. locate default site template file server/catalog/includes/sts_template.html

2. create folder: server/catalog/includes/sts_templates

3. place the content of the specific pages in sts_templates folder and name those pages as follows

 

the store front: index.php_0.html

specific category id xx pages: index.php_xx.html

specific product info page in category id xx: product_info.php_cxx.html

specific product id yy info page: product_info.php_yy.html

shipping: shipping.php.html

shopping cart: shopping_cart.php.html

 

 

4. placed the file catalog_sts_template.css under server/catalog to control styling of the content in the above pages.

avail1now,

 

Everything is looking good, unless I am overlooking something. It sure seems like something might be missing somewhere in the install.

 

Is this done?

 

Add these lines to your /catalog/includes/configure.php script. These lines

should go before the final line with the ?> characters on it.

 

// STS: ADD: Define Simple Template System files

define('STS_START_CAPTURE', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'sts_start_capture.php');

define('STS_STOP_CAPTURE', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'sts_stop_capture.php');

define('STS_RESTART_CAPTURE', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'sts_restart_capture.php');

define('STS_TEMPLATE_DIR', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'sts_templates/');

define('STS_DEFAULT_TEMPLATE', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'sts_template.html');

define('STS_DISPLAY_OUTPUT', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'sts_display_output.php');

define('STS_USER_CODE', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'sts_user_code.php');

define('STS_PRODUCT_INFO', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'sts_product_info.php');

// STS: EOADD?

Warning: session_start(): Cannot send session cache limiter - headers already sent (output started at C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs\osc\includes\application_top.php:18) in C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs\osc\includes\functions\sessions.php on line 67"

Hi Guys,

 

Great contribute, just having a probably very simple problem with one thing. I can not get my images to show when i brwse to my localhost/oscommerce/cat.. etc . everything else shows even the border around the image. I even put the imgaes in the same folder as the template.html file.. everything else works fine, but my images.

 

If i open the template html not though the server (just on the desktop) I can see the images fine. I have tried all I know .. here is a line of my html page for an image. That picture is in the same folder as the sts_template.html file.. please help.

 

TIA

I tried reading through the first 10 or so pages and I don't think this was covered for the true novice, such as myself. Hopefully these are obvious answers and won't require much explanation to solve, cause I don't want to eat up all your time.

 

Anyway, I just installed STS 2.0 and followed the easy version of the readme which gets me to this:

 

one.jpg

 

So I believe I have everything in the correct directory according to the directions. I edited the extra text;

 

// STS: ADD: Define Simple Template System files

define('STS_START_CAPTURE', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'sts_start_capture.php');

define('STS_STOP_CAPTURE', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'sts_stop_capture.php');

define('STS_RESTART_CAPTURE', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'sts_restart_capture.php');

define('STS_TEMPLATE_DIR', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'sts_templates/');

define('STS_DEFAULT_TEMPLATE', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'sts_template.html');

define('STS_DISPLAY_OUTPUT', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'sts_display_output.php');

define('STS_USER_CODE', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'sts_user_code.php');

define('STS_PRODUCT_INFO', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'sts_product_info.php');

// STS: EOADD

 

before the ?> at the end of configure.php. Now when I try to view sts_template.html to see how things should look with a blank template I get:

 

two.jpg

 

None of the placeholder text calls in the correct functions to fill out page. I take it I am missing a huge step here to make this work?

 

If any of you want to take the time to explain to me the next step I am all ears... Well eyes, you know, forum and all.

In your sts template does this line exist

 

<!--$headcontent-->

 

?

Benji01,

 

When I do my html pages I put my images in an images folder so that for example in Frontpage the picture source is: images/bottom_1.jpg where as the html files would be located in the root or same path as the images folder.

 

BUT, when I upload the images to the server, even though my product_info.php.html and such are in the includes\sts_templates folder, the images go in the catalog\images folder. On the server side of things, you almost have to think of the product_info.php and all the other .php that you design for in the catalog folder as what is looking at the images.

 

So in your example, I would say if you put the images directly in the catalog folder, things would work. I personally would modify it so they are in somewhere else so that your catalog folder doesn't get huge and ugly.

 

I hope I got the point across that I was trying to make.

Have you uploaded all these pages and checked it out through a server?

yes Leathel, these lines were added to the configure.php script. what else could it be?

 

I loaded sts 2.01 on a working osCommerce MS2.2. I have been unable to get the specific category templates to come up. These templates are named using the convention index.php_xx.html, they are located in the catalog/includes/sts_templates/ folder. I looked at STS 3.0 beta v2 instructions and they are quite similar to installation instructions of STS 2.01. Before I go through trail and error installing STS 3.00 beta v2, are there any tests I can do to detect why the category templates are not coming up?

Are there any instructions or tips for upgrading a STS2.01 shop to STS3?

 

I have a heavily modified STS2.01 package and would like to upgrade to STS3, at least for experimentation. The stock instructions covers only "Clean Installs".

I loaded sts 2.01 on a working osCommerce MS2.2. I have been unable to get the specific category templates to come up. These templates are named using the convention index.php_xx.html, they are located in the catalog/includes/sts_templates/ folder. I looked at STS 3.0 beta v2 instructions and they are quite similar to installation instructions of STS 2.01. Before I go through trail and error installing STS 3.00 beta v2, are there any tests I can do to detect why the category templates are not coming up?

 

Thank you Leathal for advising me to upgrade STS2.01 to STS 3.00 beta 2. I now have specific category pages working fine.

 

Since I already had installed STS 2.01, I used winmerge to merge line by line the changes across the below files:

 

configure.php

application_top

application_bottom

header

footer

column_left

column_right

 

In the process of loading STS 3.00 V2, I discovered that I was missing some files in my /includes folder from when STS 2.01 was installed such as, sts_retast_capture.php . It appears that this is why STS 2.01 category specific pages were not working. Thanks again to caring members particularly, Leathal. I suspect that I am going to owe a whole lot more as I delve deeper.
